Health Promotion Management (M.S.) Graduate Program Option The Master of Science in Health Promotion Management helps students explore both the why and the how of health behavior. The program aims to provide graduates with the knowledge and skills to function effectively as health educators who design, implement, manage, and evaluate health promotion and wellness programs in diverse settings - the workplace, schools, hospitals, and the community.
Health Promotion Management (M.S.) Graduate Program Option The Health Promotion Management program is designed around competencies for graduate-level health educators, which were developed by AAHE, SOPHE, and NCHEC. The degree is different than a Master of Public Health (MPH) in that the HPM program does not require coursework in environmental health and focuses less on biostatistics. However, there are many similarities between people who have a MPH and those who have a MS in HPM.
Health Promotion Management (M.S.) Graduate Program Option Health promotion specialists serve in a variety of roles and job settings. The following are examples of current career opportunities for those with a M.S. in Health Promotion Management: - Educate about health in hospitals, insurance companies, managed care organizations, and corporations. - Create special projects covering various health topics such as prevention of drug and alcohol abuse, and HIV/AIDS through national organizations such as the Council of Chief State School Officers and National School Board Association. - Monitor community health, collect and analyze data, and develop interventions in public health departments and federal agencies, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). - Partner with agencies such as the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, and ChildHelp USA.
Health Promotion Management (M.S.) Graduate Program Option The HPM program prepares students to take the certified health education specialist (CHES) credential exam, which is the only license or certification currently available for public health or health education personnel. The CHES examination is competency-based, and all the competencies assessed on the exam are covered by the HPM curriculum.
